The walk-in walk-in shower

The shower tray

The floor of the bathroom is raised to install a walk-in shower.
Clean the floor carefully and apply the glue in studs. Cut out the raised plate at the siphon and drain locations. Place the plate and coat with mortar. Install the shower tray ready to tile.
The siphon has a horizontal outlet, a bung. Insert and adjust the elements carefully. Check the tightness of the assembly.
Use hard foam drops to fill the space between the shower plates and the wall. Apply a plaster and then a sealing strip on the angle formed by the wall and the receiver.

The shower wall

The shower wall incorporates storage niches

At the entrance of the bathroom, the thickness of the bulkhead is used to install storage niches. Side window, it realizes a block of angle including shelves and integrated boxes.
The partition wall consists of plates mounted on a wooden frame. She follows the facets to marry a wavy shape. The storage niches are arranged in the curve. Use 3 cm thick panels to ensure the stability of the whole.
The column of shelves consists of 7 boxes. Each box has a bottom, an upright, a cheek and a tray. A bendable panel front is added to half of the boxes (every other row). Mount the boxes on top of each other, alternately (one with a facade, the other without). Secure them with glue.
The horizontal sealing strip is made on the linear at the bottom of the partition. Vertically, make a sealing strip on all the joints of the plate.
